What do you get when you cross a barrister with a demon from hell? – Another barrister.

People have always hated lawyers, of course. We’re down in the hell stakes with estate agents, moneylenders and politicians – but why particularly barristers should attract such venom, is a bit of a mystery. In my day (and even more so at present), criminal legal aid wasn’t particularly generous and the stress of appearing in court day after day, pretty stressful…

Perhaps it’s the theatre of the thing which gets up people’s noses. The wigs and gowns, the cut-glass voices and the impression that members of the Bar exist in a privileged world of poshness and superiority.

For a more accurate picture, read my novel, Wig Begone by Charles Courtley  which isn’t half-bad as a yarn either!
